[PATCH v8 00/13] Support PPTT for ARM64

ACPI 6.2 adds the Processor Properties Topology Table (PPTT), which is
used to describe the processor and cache topology. Ideally it is
used to extend/override information provided by the hardware, but
right now ARM64 is entirely dependent on firmware provided tables.

This patch parses the table for the cache topology and CPU topology.
When we enable ACPI/PPTT for arm64 we map the package_id to the
PPTT node flagged as the physical package by the firmware.
This results in topologies that match what the remainder of the
system expects. Finally, we update the scheduler MC domain so that
it generally reflects the LLC unless the LLC is too large for the
NUMA domain (or package).

For example on juno:
[root at mammon-juno-rh topology]# lstopo-no-graphics
  Package L#0
    L2 L#0 (1024KB)
      L1d L#0 (32KB) + L1i L#0 (32KB) + Core L#0 + PU L#0 (P#0)
      L1d L#1 (32KB) + L1i L#1 (32KB) + Core L#1 + PU L#1 (P#1)
      L1d L#2 (32KB) + L1i L#2 (32KB) + Core L#2 + PU L#2 (P#2)
      L1d L#3 (32KB) + L1i L#3 (32KB) + Core L#3 + PU L#3 (P#3)
    L2 L#1 (2048KB)
      L1d L#4 (32KB) + L1i L#4 (48KB) + Core L#4 + PU L#4 (P#4)
      L1d L#5 (32KB) + L1i L#5 (48KB) + Core L#5 + PU L#5 (P#5)
  HostBridge L#0
          PCI 1095:3132
            Block(Disk) L#0 "sda"
          PCI 1002:68f9
            GPU L#1 "renderD128"
            GPU L#2 "card0"
            GPU L#3 "controlD64"
          PCI 11ab:4380
            Net L#4 "enp8s0"

Git tree at:
branch: pptt_v8

Modify the logic used to select the MC domain (the change
  shouldn't modify the sched domains on any existing machines
  compared to v7, only how they are built)
Reduce the severity of some parsing messages.
Fix s390 link problem.
Further checks to deal with broken PPTT tables.
Various style tweaks, SPDX license addition, etc.

Add additional patch to use the last cache level within the NUMA
  or socket as the MC domain. This assures the MC domain is
  equal or smaller than the DIE.
Various formatting/etc review comments.

Rebase to 4.16rc2

Add additional patches which re-factor how the initial DT code sets
  up the cacheinfo structure so that its not as dependent on the
  of_node stored in that tree. Once that is done we rename it
  for use with the ACPI code.

Additionally there were a fair number of minor name/location/etc
  tweaks scattered about made in response to review comments.

Update the cache type from NOCACHE to UNIFIED when all the cache
  attributes we update are valid. This fixes a problem where caches
  which are entirely created by the PPTT don't show up in lstopo.

Give the PPTT its own firmware_node in the cache structure instead of
  sharing it with the of_node.

Move some pieces around between patches.
